I love bridges.

Something about them. They're shweet.
I seriously think more bridge building contests should be about
architecture, not cost, even if that is a more real-life concern.

These are what I call "optimized", meaning that if any single member was thinner (that is, any less expensive), it would collapse.





The suspension bridge with exaggerated displacements enabled:




West Point Bridge Designer 2007 is free.
I don't think they're holding any more contests, but it's an awesome program, even if it's a tad out-dated looking.
You can get it here.



Feel free to post your own fancy bridges.

My friend made a cool one that when it collapsed, it made a Darth Vader looking face.

I used this in school last year. I tried to recreate Badspot's pontifex level one solution, but realized that this does not have a complex physics system. So I made a few modifications, and actually got the outrageously asymmetrical design to hold up.

I also tried to make the cheapest working design possible. I forgot how cheap I got it, though. It's on my flash drive somewhere.

I made a bridge that was in the shape of a penis hanging down on the bottom (was on two highest hills) and teacher came by and looked at it for a second, then walked away, lol.

The "Ten Million Dollar Bridge" Thanks

It lives up to its name, but makes up for the cost by not moving at all when the truck drives on it, and it's strong as hell. No accidents. :D

I prefer pontifix 2 but this is better for just screwing around.
